Clinic Details:Shenandoah Community Health’s Special Populations Department has over 45 years of combined experience coordinating visits to migrant camps and sites where the homeless gather. Our outreach team consists of nurses, bilingual outreach workers, and drivers who support this high risk and underserved population. Special Populations’ goal is to reduce barriers to care, ensure access to care and improve services and coordinated healthcare by collecting documentation such as nursing assessments, demographics, and health screening intakes from migrant camps, homeless and other outreach sites to populate an electronic health record for each patient. We provide free nursing assessments, case management, health education, as well as referrals for medical, dental, and behavioral healthcare to agricultural workers and the homeless. We also work with the growers, health departments, churches, shelters and homeless coalitions to help identify anyone who could benefit from our services. To reduce barriers to care, Shenandoah Community Health’s Special Populations Department provides: free interpretation services in Spanish, French, and Haitian Creole at the health center, the fields of agricultural workers, in the shelters, and sites where homeless gather; telephone interpretation services and translation of documents in Spanish; patient advocacy and assistance with sliding fee, prescriptions, billing, laboratory and x-ray services; free transportation services for agricultural workers and their families, and homeless who do not have transportation, to get to our center or referral sites; free on-site health education in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole to migrants on topics such as ergonomics, first aid, and sexually transmitted diseases. We provide outreach to ensure access to healthcare at 28 migrant camps located throughout Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan Counties in West Virginia, Winchester, Virginia and adjoining counties, and Big Pool, Washington County, Maryland. In addition, Special Populations provides outreach to seven sites where homeless gather in Martinsburg, WV.

Details: In its heyday, Fulton was known as the epicenter for African Americans in Richmond’s Far East End. Historic Fulton, as it is known today, had many African American owned grocery stores, department stores, a library, and many other amenities found in any small city suburb. It even had medical practices, although segregated. The community thrived for many years until the early 1970s brought floods from the James River which nearly wiped out Historic Fulton. In fact, nearly all the residents were given relocation funding to help them move away from Fulton. Following that exodus, many of the amenities found in Fulton also disappeared and the once vibrant Fulton community was demolished. Now, several years later, many of the Historic Fulton residents want to bring back the community their parents built and that many of them enjoyed as youth and adults. This included a community once again being anchored with a medical home for its residents. Hence, the Greater Fulton Community Medical Center was born out of this desire to bring back medical resources near where the current residents live, work, and play. (Greater Fulton Community is comprised of Historic Fulton, Fulton Hill, and the adjacent community of Montrose Heights.) Indeed, the Greater Fulton Community Medical Center has reinvigorated the vibrancy Historic Fulton and surrounding communities need to keep their bodies, minds, and souls healthy as they look to the future.

Details: Our mission is to provide equal access to primary medical care and medication assistance to low income, uninsured and under-insured residents of Orange County, Virginia who do not have the resources to afford their basic health care needs. The Orange County Free Clinic opened 2006 as 501 C 3 Non-Profit organization to provide basic health care to qualifying adult individuals, those who are uninsured, underinsured and have incomes at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. The idea for starting a free clinic in Orange County was inspired by a group of committed physicians and community leaders sensitive to the lack of access to health care for low income, uninsured residents. Between July and December of 2006 there were 86 registered patients. To put it in perspective we have over 4,700 patients registered today. In 2007, the Orange County Health Department gave the Clinic borrowed space to operate on Tuesday nights for walk-in patients. Today, the Clinic operates in space located in the Silk Mill Complex. In-kind donations from Laboratory Corporation of America (LabCorp) and Culpeper Regional Hospital followed as did a partnership between Orange Pharmacy, Wilderness Pharmacy and Rappahannock – Rapidan Community Services Board. The relationship between many of these early community partners and the OCFC remains strong to this day. In 2009, the OCFC became a member of the Virginia Association of Free and Charitable Clinics. In 2011 the clinic became a member of the Orange County Chamber of Commerce. In 2016, The OCFC moved to a larger facility in the Town of Orange, Orange Virginia, 101 C Woodmark Street, providing easier accessibility, expanded hours, services and additional staff. This tremendous opportunity happened through the hard work and sponsorship of many generous and caring individuals!
